Save the Ringtails is a completely non-profit organization committed to raising awareness and support for threatened members of the Procyonidae: the family of the raccoon and its cousins. There are mammals with rings on their tails both inside and outside of this family. This organization focuses on the most familiar ringtails: those in the raccoon family. Although there are healthy populations of some of its members, several procyonids face considerable challenges to their survival.
